Quantifi, a leading provider of analytics and risk management solutions to the global credit markets, announced today the firm's expansion to Australia with the opening of an office in Sydney, in response to increasing regional demand.
The firm has appointed James Glover as Head of APAC Sales to manage the Asia Pacific region, including Australia as well as the firm's existing business in Japan. Quantifi has existing offices in New York and London and a growing presence in Tokyo.
The Sydney office will focus on product development, deployment and local access for Quantifi's clients, which include banks, hedge funds, asset management companies and insurance companies. Mr. Glover will primarily be responsible for managing the firm's regional client base and sales efforts.
"As part of our continued dedication to the APAC region, we are extremely excited to announce the opening of our Australia office," says Rohan Douglas, CEO and Founder of Quantifi, Inc. "This new office puts us closer to many of our clients in the region, enabling us to provide dedicated local resources to support growing demand. We are also pleased to be bringing on board James Glover, who has extensive experience in the Australian credit derivatives industry."
Mr. Glover joined Quantifi in July as head of the Asia Pacific office and is based in Sydney, Australia. He has over 15 years experience in front and middle office positions in risk management, IT and credit derivatives trading in Sydney and Europe, including four years at Deutsche Bank in London and Sydney, on the CDO trading desk. Mr. Glover has also held Executive Director level positions with UBS and previously worked for NAB, SBNSW and Bain Management Consultants in Boston. He will be reporting directly to Mr. Douglas.
Mr. Glover says, "Quantifi offers industry participants the leading credit derivatives models, pricing tools, and risk analytics. I am excited to be joining a firm of such caliber and am looking forward to helping expand Quantifi's presence in Australia."
